I just installed Ubuntu 8.04 LTS on my laptop. I am, of cause, in need of an internet connection.
I've got the Philips SNN6500 Wireless Notebook Adapter.
I've installed the driver Madwifi-0.9.4 with the help of this guide
I think that the installation is successful.
Then I enter System>Administration>Networking. I click on the "Wireless Connection" and enter properties. I find the correct ESSID, and I type the correct password. I choose "Automatic configuration (DHCP)" and clicks OK, and closes Network Settings.
Then I felt confident enough to open Mozilla, and yet I met with a screen that says:
Page Load Error
Address Not Found
Firefox can't find the server at XXXXX
The browser could not find the host server for the provided address
Etc. etc. etc.
I really hope that you guys can help me since Iím very interested in this Ubuntu-edition but Iím lost without my internet connection.
